We have a hen that was given to us that I have affectionately named Miss Bianca. She’s a funny little Silky with a poof on her head that reminds me of Miss Biana’s hat in the animated movie,The Rescuers.
Lately, all she does is sit in the nesting boxes. I had to lift her out so I could put clean straw in the boxes, but when I was done, she immediately set about gathering the eggs under again.
She doesn’t care that none of these eggs were laid by her.
When I collected all the eggs, she kept looking and looking for them. Poor thing.
At least the other girls lay new eggs every day for her to love.
